When technology fails: self-reliance and coping with emergency

Tahoe Silicon Mountain next week will welcome Matthew Stein to present: “When Technology Fails: Self-Reliance and Coping with the Long Emergency.”

Have you ever thought about what would happen if society faced long-term failures of the electrical grid and other central services?

Right now, there is a storm brewing on the horizon with six long-term global trends converging on collapse.

Stein will discuss why he thinks our society is vulnerable and what we can collectively and individually do to be more self-reliant, sustainable, and better prepared to cope with this approaching storm.

Stein, local bestselling author, MIT-trained engineer and green builder, will discuss the scientific reasons that make this scenario not only possible, but highly likely, and what we can do about it on a personal, community, and global level.

The meeting will be Monday, Feb. 9, at 6-8 p.m. at Pizza on the Hill, in Tahoe Donner at 11509 Northwoods Blvd. in Truckee.

A $5 fee includes pizza and salad. Before and after the presentation, there will be time for networking with other technology professionals who live and work in the Tahoe-Truckee region.

This month’s event is sponsored by New Leaders.
